Slight crumbly, thick, and chewy. These brownies are heaven! They are amazingly rich, super chocolatey, and smooth. Dangerously addicting, you will lose your mind a little bit.
8 1-ounce squares unsweetened baking chocolate
1 cup butter
3 cups white sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
2 cups chopped walnuts
1 ¼ cups white sugar
1 cup heavy cream
5 1-ounce squares unsweetened baking chocolate
½ cup butter softened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
HOW TO MAKE FROSTED FUDGY BROWNIES
Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 375 degrees F or 190 degrees C.
Step 2: Then, grease a 13 x 9-inch baking pan.
Step 3: Add the 8 ounces baking chocolate and a cup of butter in a microwave-safe bowl. Melt in the microwave over high heat for about 2 minutes until soft and butter has melted.
Step 4: Add the eggs, 3 cups of sugar, and 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract in a large bowl. Beat using an electric mixer for about 2 minutes on high speed. Adjust to low and beat in the melted butter-and-chocolate mixture. Add in the flour and beat until just combined. Make sure to not overbeat, then, stir in the chopped walnuts.
Step 5: Transfer the batter into the prepared pan and spread.
Step 6: Place inside the preheated oven and bake for about 35 minutes until the toothpick inserted in the middle comes out with fudgy crumbs.
Step 7: Remove from the oven and allow the brownie to cool in the pan before frosting.
Step 8: For the frosting, combine the 1 1/4 cup of sugar and heavy cream in a saucepan. Cook over medium heat. Stir for 3 minutes until the sugar is dissolved and begins to simmer. Adjust the heat to low and let the mixture simmer for 7 minutes more without stirring.
Step 9: Remove the cream mixture from the heat before stirring in the 5 ounces baking chocolate and half a cup of butter. Mix until melted and blended. Add a teaspoon of vanilla extract and whisk until smooth. Refrigerate the frosting for about 30 minutes, whisking every few minutes until chilled.
Step 10: Once the frosting is chilled, frost the brownies, then, cut them into squares.
If using a glass bowl, preheat your oven to about 350 degrees F or 175 degrees C.
Use macadamia nuts in place with walnuts if you prefer.
